Itinerary: Best of Puerto Rico

Trip for two to see the best of Puerto Rico. We cruised into PR once and did the typical San Juan jaunt-tourist shops, fort, and had a great meal. We'd like to see more this time. Any feedback would be appreciated... another place we could fit in, inexpensive shopping, logistics, places we can't miss for meals- whether its a hole in the wall or a fancy restaurant, we love good food!

Day 1. Fly into San Juan noonish.

Taxi/shuttle to check into Wyndham Rio Mar.

Day 2. Explore El Yunque Rainforest

Day 3. Day trip to Caving in Rio Camuy (Aventura Tierra Adentro tours)

Day 4. Fly to Vieques from Ceiba (heard it was $30?) stay at W Retreat. Relax. Spa day.

Day 5. Snorkel, beach. Bio lum tour at night.

Day 6. Ferry or fly back to San Juan for return home.

you didnt mention it specifically, but, do you plan on getting a car rental?

if yes, then your itinerary looks good.

you will end up spending more for taxis and tours than the rental car if not. check out prices at priceline.com.

the only real issue i see is going to camuy from the rio mar. camuy is about 45 minutes west of san juan and the rio mar is about 45 minutes east of san juan. and you want to be at camuy by 8am. its alot of driving.

consider, renting a car at the airport. staying one night in Old San Juan or around San Juan. check it out.

check out, go to camuy then drive to the rio mar or another overnight hotel. go to el yunque the next day. guavate that night. next day go to vieques. park your car at the airport for a couple of days or if you rent from Avis drop it off at the ceiba location, fly to vieques then fly back to san juan to go home. if you fly to san juan from vieques, fly into ISLA GRANDE airport then a $25 cab ride to SJU
